The Central Coast community are one of more than 50 across NSW to benefit from funding to commemorate veterans across the state.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch announced 3 projects across the Central Coast would receive $2,900 from the latest round of the Anzac Community Grants Program.
“I would like to acknowledge Operations Jaywick and Rimau Memorial Committee, Fizz Events Pty Ltd and Ourimbah-Lisarow RSL Sub-Branch for their commitment to veterans across our region,” Mr Crouch said.
“These events will also provide an opportunity for our community to honor their service, and allow for our future generations to learn of their efforts.
“Our community is incredibly thankful for the sacrifices made by current serving members and that of past service men and women who have defended our nation for more than a century.”
Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said more than $56,000 would be provided to a range of projects across the state.
“More than $56,000 will be provided to a range of projects that commemorate and educate NSW communities about the service and sacrifices of current and former military servicemen and servicewomen,” Mr Elliott said.
“Some of these great projects and initiatives, including across the Central Coast recognise Australia’s war service history, educate a new generation and support the wellbeing of the NSW veteran community.”
